Come and see the KMU-100 in action at NAB2016

The KMU-100 is rising in popularity, and it will be the star of the show in Las Vegas at the upcoming NAB show!
If you’re there, make sure to check out the product, or wait until we post the after NAB report on here. Until that moment please read the press release our friends from Datavideo US sent out to the press yesterday morning.

We’re pround to announce a new product, which revolutionizes the way 4K cameras are used for live video production. The KMU-100 is a unique 4K multi-camera production solution that delivers multiple virtual full HD (up to 1080p) scaled camera angles with minimal installation costs and simple operation.

The basic concept is straightforward: the output of a single 4k/UHD camera is connected to KMU-100, which then displays up to four 16×9 user-defined cropped windows that are sent out as four separate HD signals through HD-SDI. These user deined windows can be scaled to zoom in on a particular subject that you would like to highlighy on the 4K signal. An additional 4k camera could be connected to allow up eight defined outputs from the two 4K signals. As an option, the Datavideo RMC-180 camera controller can be added to easily pan, tilt and zoom to create the user defined windows on the 4k signal.You can set up these shouts in advance and save them as presets, or you can do it in real-time.

For example, if you wanted to broadcast a live three-piece band concert using 4K camera, simply set up the 4K/UHD camera with a wide angle shot, then connect the camera output to the KMU-100. Use the RMC-180 controller to select up to four 16×9 windows which could be positioned with a joystick as well as resized form any part of the original 4K signal. You can now have the following shots:

  • Wide angle of the band
  • A colse up shot of the lead singer
  • Close up drummer and drum set
  • Close up to piano player

These 4 virtual camera signals (up to 1080p) could be connected to any HD-SDI switcher, giving the illusion of a multi camera production when in reality, you only have one 4K camera.

Finally, it’s viable to use 4K camera in live multi-camera production. states Craig Moffat, Managing Director of Datavideo US. Imagine how convenient it would be to set up a live video production for concerts, press conferences, sport events or a worship service. No camera operator needed and minimal set-up time- a real game changer for live video producers.

KMU-100 will be shipping to the summer of 2016.
